Iron Mike MP4 Hopper Fed Pitching Machine
What makes this machine great is its ability to simulate a real pitcher. The Iron Mike MP4 is the only machine on the list to feature an arm-style pitch delivery system. This feature allows for the most game-like situation practice of any machine. It also is fed by a 'hopper' which eliminates the need for another person to stand and deliver the baseballs into the machine. The downside is its versatility - the Iron Mike only pitches, and designed to remain in one location, limiting portability. This is not the machine for everyone, but serves its own purpose of game simulation pitching better than any other machine on the market. The Iron Mike also comes at a high cost, which is to be expected of top tier pitching machines.
